LSU likes Calif. WR

The No. 1 receiver on the West Coast for 2004 is Cameron Colvin, and he plays for one of the top high school programs in the country at DeLaSalle High School in Concord, Calif.

The 6-foot-2, 193-pound wideout posted a 4.3 (40) at a Nike combine and he showed great hands and excellent route running techniques to go along with his already long list of credentials.

He has his pick of where he wants to play his college football and the scholarship offers to prove it.

"I've got 31 offers or something like that," Colvin told Tiger Rag. "I'm wide open right now but I'm starting to narrow it down to some to LSU, Miami, Michigan, Florida State, Oklahoma, USC and that would probably be it right for now. They all want to spread the ball around and they produce a lot of good receivers. Leaving the West Coast doesn't matter at all."

LSU has recruited California hard since coach Nick Saban took over the program nearly four years ago and Colvin likes the excitement he sees and hears down in Baton Rouge.

"I have always seem them on TV and I always said they really don't have a lot of receivers," Colvin said. "They look like a five-wide set that likes to spread the ball around a lot and that is what caught my eye. I met coach Stacy Searles when he came down here to see me before the Nike camp and that is what brought me a lot of interest in LSU."

Colvin met a good friend in Louisiana native Early Doucet at the Miami camp they both attended and Doucet filled him on a little about the tradition at LSU.

"I talked to Early and he was telling me about the atmosphere down at LSU and how it was pretty good," Colvin said. "The atmosphere means a lot to me and when I take my official visit I can't wait to see it."

Is there a chance Colvin and Doucet could end up signing with the same school? "We talked about it but we were not sure because we have different interest," said Colvin. "But we agreed it wouldn't be bad. When we first met it was kind of weird because we were two of the top guys in the nation competing against each other. But after that we roomed together and joked around a lot. We clicked together and keep in touch now."
